Overflowing Cup Life Center needs a kitchen
The Overflowing Cup Total Life Center at Josiahs Place Coffeehouse, 306 State St., Beloit, Wis., is in need of a kitchen to accommodate a weekend feeding program as well as their holiday meal program.
For several years, the center has served holiday meals. Last year, they fed more than 200 people, including families with children and single people who were less fortunate. Some of those attending live under the bridges of Beloit. After the Christmas meal, presents were given to all of the children and to as many adults as there were gifts available. This year, even more people are expected to take advantage of the Total Life Centers Christmas meal.
Kitchen needs include: cabinets and counter tops that are either new or used but in good condition; a licensed plumbing contractor to install the plumbing to the area; and commercial equipment including a two-door refrigerator, double oven 60″ gas range, four-hole sink, six ft. worktable and large water heater.
The estimated cost (value) of the kitchen project is $18,000. In addition to the above needs, the restroom capacity must be increased, and monthly financial contributions are encouraged to help with the operating costs.
The Overflowing Cup Total Life Center is an interdenominational street and coffeehouse ministry and was founded in 1974, reaching out to the youth and the less fortunate of Beloit. The Overflowing Cup is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and can offer tax-deductible receipts for all donations.
